Hi Carlos, Michael,

Carlos, note that this is not an update to the Techniques for WCAG 2.0 
document but a call for review for an *Editor Draft* of the document.

However, Michael, this question is also relevant to the accessibility 
support database and other work that relies on the XML sources of the 
techniques [1]. As far as I understand, these XML sources are updated 
with each update made to the Techniques for WCAG 2.0 document - right?

PS: Stability of the XML schema for the sources is also an issue.
